This seminar will consider the eighteenthcentury poet’s works as part of a national narrative of hope that is inaugurated during an era of colonization and enslavement as beckoning of full freedom and liberty for all its citizens. While history tells a less hopeful tale of the plight of the enslaved, the poet’s audaciousness is part of an American narrative that refuses to concede anything less than full liberty and citizenship for African Americans, echoing sacred and secular hopes of a better world
